My first delve into Linux and I'm very impressed with the clean elegant lines of Mint 15
and functionality is cool.
When I first installed Mint from disk I am fairly sure the sound was coming through the 5.1 speakers OK but after several reboots updates etc
I am getting nothing. I have plugged in a mini USB speaker as a stopgap until I get things fixed.
I hope its something simple as I have noted already the conversations on these forums border on the esoteric. Make that unintelligible for the newbies
